The New Covenant – Grace: Part 2

The New Covenant – Grace: Part 2

Mar 3, 2014

Belief in Jesus, His life, sacrifice, & resurrection is the New Covenant. Jesus was born from the line of Judah, the bloodline of King Solomon & King David. He was a Jew. Through His life & ministry on earth, He was sinless. He resisted the devil 3 times starving in the wilderness. He did not sin, but was persecuted and crucified nevertheless. He was the only one who fulfilled the Law. Explaining Matthew 5:24, he didn’t come to destroy the Law, but He fulfilled it. He was the only one who lived a perfect life, therefore fulfilling the Law.

God’s new covenant was that believing that Jesus was His Son, and His Son died a perfect man, fulfilling His Law, that whosoever believes in His Son, will be saved when He judges us all.

Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. (Revelation 20:6 NKJV)

Through Jesus He established a new covenant with us. That which is the Grace of God. This is the New Covenant, the New Testament, and the current age we live under today.

The thing about this new covenant that the Apostle Paul explained was a mystery (Colossians 1:24-29) was that this covenant was not just for the Jews, but also for the Gentiles. Before this time, the only one that spoke to the one God was Israel. Remember the rest of the land were pagans, following the mystery religion of Babylon. The Jews were His chosen people and He only had the covenant with them. The new covenant from God through His Son was for everybody, the Jews and the Gentiles. A Gentile was anyone who was not a Jew.

The Grace of God is a gift that could never be repaid. We were born sinners because of Adam. There was nothing we could ever do to make things right with God. We were born into sin. We all deserve condemnation, going to hell. The gift of God is that by accepting God’s gift through His Son, we become right with Him and we know Him. It’s something we never could get by our own works and nothing that we deserve. His grace provides the promise. His grace provides us having access to the Holy Spirit and having Jesus right in us.

This is what Grace is. It’s given freely and has nothing to do with works, that way no one can boast and show off how they’re doing so much more for God. Making that the reason why they’re blessed (Ephesians 2:9). We all have the same gift. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit, so one can’t put their blessings on their works.

The Grace of God is the new Covenant. The covenant in which we currently operate our lives through right now. Only the Jews can say that they have another covenant with the One God. So they would still be living under the Law, however you don’t hear often of many mainstream Jews performing animal sacrifices and the like. They too are boggled down in tradition, which is why they weren’t able to see their prophesied Messiah when He was present with them. Tradition.

Grace is the ultimate gift from God and should be totally understood by every Christian. This is the basis of the Christian doctrine and if it is not properly taught, understood, and accepted, it leaves the Christian partially living through grace and living through the Law. It quenches the Holy Spirit.

  1. I think you should note in both articles that the Ten Commandments still stand. They are set in stone.

    • Gervais Campbell /

      Amen,…Jesus came not to destroy the law but to fulfill it. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. On these two hang…..Mat 22:37-40

    • I totally agree, it’s only the ceremonial law that Jesus mailed to the cross. An unbeliever might be confused if this is not pointed out clearly and think that the perfect law of God the foundation of his throne does not have to be acknowledged or followed because they are now under grace.

  2. Really like your color pallete. Darkness monidlg into yellow is perfect. For yellow stands for wisdom, creativity, intellectual eneergy, clarity and optimism; all traits we need in our covenant creation together. Plus the Greek and Hebrew added give the header that important inclusive/biblical frame.Bill McBride

    I’m not sure I totally understand, if some things are stated in Leviticus 19:
    Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves any gods of cast metal: I am the Lord your God.

    Deuteronomy 32:17
    They sacrificed to demons that were no gods, to gods they had never known, to new gods that had come recently, whom your fathers had never dreaded.

    we are live by, but yet we are not under the law Moses, but under the new covenant with save by his grace, why is it ok to follow some parts of the old testament and not all such abstaining idol worship and from certain foods as well. I get that we are save by his grace but some of the signs and symbols you talk about are in the old testament. I’m not sure why its just for the Jews how do we know if we are not from the Jewish descent are bloodline. Jesus come Jewish descent so why would we not obey the old testament just like the Jews.

    • It’s not about not following the Old Testament. I’ve never said that. It’s about being led by the Holy Spirit. This is what’s important under the New Covenant. Being led by His Spirit

      • Nena /

        You are 100% correct and you made a great point of the important of the Holy Spirit!!!

    • Gervais Campbell /

      Jesus said, ” I came not to destroy the law but to fulfill it.” This statement embodies the difference between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law…..It’s why the scripture is not a book of rules, rules become obsolete but the spirit of the law, or the mind of Christ, can be applied continually….Re: our the blood lineage, it simply doesn’t matter. Jew or Gentile we’re one in Christ.

    Greeting to all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. It’s nice to find others with this doctrine, Acts 2:38, it’s easy to start feeling alone but ,just like God told Elijah, I know I’m not alone.

    Bless you Sir, for your faithfulness…this is kingdom teaching and many will not understand because they are busy trying to fill the need of “gimmy” and increase by giving out of man’s teachings under the law and works! They look at all those T.V. preacher with fine cars, homes and money they don’t realize their getting was from them giving!
    WAKE UP CHURCH!!

    My Rest in Found In Christ Alone
    …Don’t need to work at my blessing!

  6. Just curious, you say this line allot..” It quenches the Holy Spirit”, but quench means to satisfy? So why is it being used in the context that it’s something that should not be done?

    • I say this because of 1st Thessalonians 5:19. The other definition of quench is to extinguish like putting out a fire

      • Oh, that makes sense…thank you for clarifying that. I’m so grateful for this site so people can find truth and clarity. Thank you again for your time and good works.

    Jesus fulfilled the law. The law is now a guideline since we have the mind of Christ. We will not be judged by the law however. we will be judged by grace cause by the time you do anything contrary to the law you have already broken the provisions of the new covenant.

  8. What does matthew 5:18 mean

    • Gervais Campbell /

      Mat 5:18 Jesus here refers to the destruction of this Earth and heaven, upper atmosphere, being destroyed (2 Peter 3:11) and that the Scripture ‘s prophecies regarding the salvation and deliverance of His people will have come to fruition before there is no need for written Scripture (Rev 21:3).

      • Thank you for responding Gervis, but i am still confused. Hebrew israelites use this scriptue (matt 5:18) to defend their position that the law of Moses is still applicable…i have read the scriptures concerning grace and i believe them but i find myself wrestling with this scripture and would like it to be settled in my spirit. Since Jesus fullfilled the law and it is done away with , why does he say in vs 18 “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished”and in vs 19 “Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven”.
